We stayed for a week last year at The Grove and enjoyed this restaurant every night as you have numerous options. Equally as good this visit but the service has slipped a tad as waiters and waitress were not as attentive or there were less. Other than that it was excellent. I still think the... read more

The glasshouse had a buffet which could not fail to please anyone. Featuring Asian , Indian, English roasts, seafood, salads and tempting deserts. Staff were polite and helpful and happy. Leave time before or after to have a wander around the landscaped gardens with water features for memorable photos. We had coffee in one of the relaxing side rooms after... More

We went here recently for dinner. The food was ok but the prices areridiculous for what is essentially self service. Lacks atmosphere and would not recommend at all.

Not for the first time we visited this brilliant buffet restaurant in superb grounds. This time it was for a 12 year old's birthday treat. Don't go there unless you like masses of excellent food surrounded by delightful staff

Had breakfast here for 2 mornings and the selection was vast and good quality. Interesting options like healthy frozen yogurt made in front of you, and organic honey made on site. can get busy at weekends but the staff were well organised.

We had a fabulous day out with lunch in the glasshouse. My children aged 8 and 4 had a brilliant time both during the lunch and after as we walked on the grounds. There was plenty of food to choose from

Great food, lots of choices, excellently cooked and served. The dessert buffet was overwhelming. Unfortunately as many tables were close to each other the noise was a bit much. Introduce the one or other "spanish wall" and everything would be better.
